Posts Tagged ‘Hudswell Clarke 24T Saddle Tank’

Dave Jones of DJ Models has today announced the addition to his range of the Southern Region Class 71 Bo-Bo 3rd Rail electric locomotive.

Dave Jones advised: what makes this model so special is that this model will be attempted to be financed by crowd sourcing through a ‘Kickstarter’ campaign. This will allow, for the first time, a UK 00 model railway locomotive to be funded up front by the customers who will receive a model for their faith in signing up to this project.

By crowd sourcing the finance for this model I am able to start work almost immediately with the laser scanning (Thanks to the National Railway Museum) and cad/cam production, whereas otherwise it would take up to 2 years rather than the possible 1.

The model will feature a coreless motor, heavy chassis, directional lighting, etched grilles where possible, separate wire handrails, DCC 21 pin decoder socket with a large space for a sound speaker, sprung buffers, and of course alternate slide details for the class 74 at a later date.
